Left over bracing?

Howdy all, please see pictures, after 18 months, I’m finished the body work on my four fenders, and I now have this piece left over. I can’t remember where it went or where it attached. I’ve looked underneath, and can’t see where it attached...
Help!

It is a front fender brace. The vertical piece attaches to the radiator support. The horizontal attaches to the fender lip.

Yep, front fender brace. There is a left and a right.

...A bit scary that my memory couldn’t remember. Oh well that’s what cameras are for.

By chance does anyone know where I might get an illustration of where this brace connects? I understand the alignment, but I am having a time figuring where this is bolted on...

Thanks!

The Factory Assembly Manual shows the brace bolted to the radiator support on Section 11, Sheets 2.06 and 2.08 and to the fender on Sheet 11.00.
